Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time5 mins
Servings: 5

Ingredients

  • 1 round of Brie 8 oz.
  • 2 large baking apples cored and chopped
  • 1/2 medium orange peeled and chopped, with juice
  • 2 Tbsps red onion chopped
  • 2 tsps fresh ginger finely minced
  • 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp dried rosemary
  • 3 Tbsps honey preferably local
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup apple cider
  • 1/4 cup pecans roughly chopped
  • Fresh thyme or rosemary sprigs for garnish

To Serve:

  • Gluten-free crackers or crostini and/or sliced apples tossed in some lemon juice to prevent browning

Instructions

  • Carefully cut the top off the round of Brie and place inside a round heat-proof bowl just large enough to hold it (see dimensions above). Place the rind back on top of the Brie and cover tightly with aluminum foil. Set aside.
  • Add the chopped apples, orange, onion, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, rosemary, honey, salt, and apple cider to the Instant Pot and stir to combine.
  • Place the prepared round of Brie on to the silicone trivet and carefully lower into the unit with the trivet arms up for easy removal.
  • Lock the lid into place and flip the pressure valve to “Sealing.” Set the “Manual” setting to “High” for 5 minutes.
  • When the cook time is complete, allow pressure to release naturally for 10 minutes, then do a quick release for any remaining pressure. Once the pin drops and no additional steam comes out, carefully remove the lid before lifting out the trivet and Brie and set aside.
  • Select the Sauté function on the highest setting. Bring the fruit mixture to a low boil while stirring frequently. Heat until the mixture thickens, approximately 2-3 minutes. Turn the unit off.
  • Remove the foil and the top piece of rind from the warm Brie. To serve, transfer to a platter and spoon some of the fruit mixture on top. Sprinkle with the chopped pecans and garnish with small sprigs of fresh rosemary and/or thyme, if desired. Serve immediately with gluten-free crackers or crostini, and/or fresh apple slices. Enjoy!
